A fire broke out early this Sunday morning in an apartment in a residence in Toulon. Smoke emanating from the apartment located on the 4th floor quickly spread to nine other units in the residence, causing two deaths.
A 73-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man were found unconscious when firefighters arrived at the scene of the fire. Despite resuscitation attempts, both died.
A total of 29 firefighters were dispatched to the scene. The national and municipal police are also present on the scene.
It has been three hours since the intervention began. More information to come.
